Two more transactions were made by the Dodgers before today’s game: calling up infielder Ronald Torreyes from Triple-A Oklahoma City and acquiring minor-league catcher Jack Murphy from Toronto to provide a fast resolution to the Darwin Barney trade.
Torreyes, who turned 23 on September 2, made his MLB debut in the fifth inning of today’s game, replacing Jose Peraza at second base. He had a .340 on-base percentage and .388 slugging percentage in 13 games with Oklahoma City, along with a .348 OBP and .410 slugging with Double-A Tulsa.
Los Angeles designated Barney for assignment June 12 to make room for Torreyes on the 40-man roster upon his acquisition.
The 27-year-old Murphy, drafted out of Princeton by the Blue Jays in 2009, is not on the 40-man roster. He had a .309 OBP and .315 slugging for Double-A New Hampshire in 2015.
Don Mattingly also told reporters today that Carlos Frias is traveling back to Los Angeles with the team and could be activated from the disabled list this week.
Update: Torreyes doubled in his first Major League at-bat, joining Jose Peraza, Corey Seager, Scott Schebler, Austin Barnes and Carlos Frias as Dodgers who got their first hits in 2015.
